Manage Stress Increase Probability
Dear CFA Candidate,
Are you confident ahead of the December 2 exam? If you are, or if you aren't, here are some tips that may increase the probability of your eventual success! It's never too late to clear your head! 1) The biggest predictor of academic success is mindset. Belief that you will succeed even guides your choices of study plan, research shows!
To find out your beliefs about yourself, take a couple minutes after a study session and jot down 3 sentences about how you feel about December 2, 2017.
2) Are you anxious? Does your heart start pounding when you think about arriving at exam center at 8 AM on December 2?
To succeed you need more time. Increase study time, do better than 80% on practice exams. Research shows that anxious people do just as well on exams as non anxious; it just takes them longer to complete the work.
